Atrazine and Atrazine Metabolites

Atrazine is one of the most commonly used agricultural herbicides in the world, with high efficacy for killing broadleaf and grassy weeds. While cheap and effective, its potential harm to human health and the environment has led to increased scrutiny in the United States.

  • CIL Continues Development of Toxaphene Congener Standards

Whether you are testing legacy organochlorine pesticides or newer pyrethroid pesticides, CIL is your supplier for isotopically labeled standards. Over the years, we have developed standards for OCs, OPs, carbamates, triazines, pyrethroids, and most recently, toxaphene parlar congeners. CIL also offers convenient calibration and spiking mixtures so that lab personnel are not tasked with formulating and QCing large sets of standard solutions.
